Dupuis: Back then, it was revealed that the NSA tapped the German Chancellor's phone, sparking outrage across Europe. It turns out the French government had been targeted by U.S. spies long before then allegedly eavesdropping on three French President, Jacques Chirac, Nicolas Sarkozy and Hollande from 2006 to 2012. The French government demands an explanation. Stephane Le Foll, French govt. spokesman: The French Foreign Affairs Minister has summoned the Ambassador to the United States this afternoon. A senior intelligence official will also travel to the U.S. to discuss the commitments that have been agreed between the U.S. and France. Dupuis: Across the political spectrum, politicians slammed the allegations, saying allies should not spy on each other. Pierre Lellouche, Former Trade Minister: Barack Obama should apologize and follow a code of conduct. Democratic countries simply can’t do that sort of thing.
